Convenience Foods

It could be a long few weeks. When we were remodeling our kitchen this past spring, we had little difficulty eating since we still had the convenience of the "MICROWAVE." In late July, yes exactly 100 days ago, we bought a new microwave because our old one wasn't heating anything anymore. Well, Tuesday night, our new microwave, which is 10 days past the store warranty, DIED! No problem, call the manufacturer and get a new one right? Yes, we will get a new one, but first I had to cut the power chord and send it in to them as if I could use the darn thing anyway! So, we are without the convenience of a microwave for at least three weeks. I am actually pleasantly surprised that we'll be getting a brand new one as I was expecting to have to bring the broken in somewhere to get it fixed.

So, the fun began yesterday when I had to make my oatmeal on the stovetop. I actually had to read the directions on the oatmeal, as I have never made oatmeal on the stove before. The rest of the day was fine, except for warming my cold coffee. Not quite sure how to tackle that one yet. This morning, I warmed mac & cheese on the stove as well. Not quite as quick as the microwave, but it worked and I'm sure the girls will still have the same luke-warm lunch they always do in their thermos.

Have a great Thursday and if you'd like to see the world's cutest foursome, check out the family blog for their school pictures.

Watch out, next thing you know you'll be calling home to find out how to make hot dogs on the stove too. I believe that was one of my sisters babysitting so many years ago who actually did that...

And microwave oatmeal is no good! Much better on the stove!!

we made oatmeal for dinner on the stove last night........a little odd I know but I try to do a few meatless nights a week and it works :) It's easier making a big pan instead of 5 bowls!
